Hmm...I've always wondered if psychological disorders are just part of a person's personality. Or maybe, it's that "other person" inside your head, like schizophrenics have that voice in their heads. I heard a true account from a friend who has a relative suffering from schizophrenia. It's...too me interesting, but only for the sake of inquiry, for the person it's suffering.
I did some thinking and...you know how in psychology it's likely to compartmentalize a problem? Like, you split yourself into two situations when you're a counselor cum lecturer. You're like living two lives. Then, can we do the same thing to our disorders? Maybe our disorders are really our suppressed needs, like Freud's transference theory. Can you actually split yourself into 2? One part disorder; one part normal (if there is such thing as normal)?
Let's say you can do such a thing, and you try to "talk" to that other self of your's into erm...getting along with your life? How would such a conversation go? The other person knows everything you know, does everything you do, basically lives your life as you do, except perhaps in a different perspective. How do you live a disorderly life? What is a disorderly life?
If you say it's something out of the norm and detached with everyone else, maybe it's a hermit? Or maybe an eccentric? Kinda ridiculous if you think about it, because the only reality there is to a disorderly lifetime is someone who is totally gone crazy. A person who is having psychosis 24 hours a day, which doesn't exist at all. It's quite similar to a normal person's life, except it's blown out of proportion. A normal person throws small tantrums while a psychotic goes through psychosis.
Hmm...imagine having a chat with the "psychosis" inside you. Freaky, huh?
